First, let me say
thank you all for coming to the meeting on
Thursday night. I appreciate your your
commitment to our scouting program as well as
your travels to my house! I have attached a
typed version of the calendar we all worked so
hard to create. If there are any mistakes,
please let me know immediately as I would like
to have these printed for the round up on Sept.

this event and Ken will be providing more

Den leaders can email any den info to Carla for
the newsletter to be available at the pack
meetings. Carla will send a deadline prior to
completing the newsletter. Please feel free to
share any and all den news, plans, advancements,
etc. - anything you might want to share with the

We are hoping to
provide each scout with a Pinewood Derby car at
Christmas - paid for by the pack through
fundraising. **Handed out at Mike's Farm??**
Popcorn sales will
begin at Sept. pack meeting and run through Oct.
22. All monies should be turned in to Popcorn
chair at Oct. pack meeting. It might be a good
idea to solicit order forms and monies at your
den meeting prior to the pack meeting to give
yourselves time to tally orders on master den
order forms. Those master order forms and
monies should be turned into chair no later than
The pack would like
to pay for each scout to attend Mike's Farm on
Dec. 18th. Also, to raise money for a new
Pinewood Derby Race Track. Approx cost of a
track is $500.
Each Den will
provide a Thanksgiving Food Basket filled with
non-perishables and a gift card to be turned in
at the November 24th pack meeting. They will
then be handed over to IOP Parish for delivery.
The Blue & Gold
Banquet is scheduled for Feb. 28 at 6:30.
However, we will be looking into the possibility
of an afternoon event. I will be checking with
Lisa to see if the Hall is available from 2-5.
Another possibility is an alternate location and
we will discuss this at a later time.
We have the Parish
Hall reserved on May 27 for the Crossover
ceremony. This is also subject to change.
Anyone in need of
training, please email Ken and he will set up a
training day to get everyone qualified.
materials need to be ordered asap - please let
me know if you are in need of something
specific. Brigid will be
taking over the awards and needs a copy of Pack
Master to put on her computer. Please check
your desks, closets, bags, etc. to see if you
have one hiding somewhere.
Additional info: We
have 3 Bear Books available for purchase at
$7.00 each. Angie will be picking up youth and
adult registration forms at the round table this
month. After the registration, I will
immediately compile a den roster for each leader
and dens can begin meeting at your convenience.
The use of Pack Master program is a very easy
way to track advancement - if you would like a
copy, please let me know and as soon as one
turns up I will get it to you.
If I can help in any
way, please let me know. I am very excited
about the upcoming year and it would seem that
we are off to a great start! Sorry if I
forgot to add anything!
